“* A great choice for all ages, with strong appeal for both girls and boys, these novels will be read and enjoyed--repeatedly.” ―VOYA, starred review
“* It's another Marissa Meyer roller coaster ride, part science fiction/fantasy, part political machination with a hint of romance. Readers will be pushed into a horrific alternate universe where violence, especially mind manipulation and control, create ethical and life-threatening situations for both teens. With at least one more Lunar Chronicle to come, the suspense continues. And which fairy tale will Meyer morph next?” ―Booklist, starred review
“* Returning fans of Meyer's Cinder will gladly sink their teeth into this ambitious, wholly satisfying sequel.” ―Publishers Weekly, starred review
“The author has stepped up the intrigue and plot from the first novel, and readers will be eagerly awaiting the next.” ―School Library Journal
“Further development of this futuristic world plus plenty of action, surprises, and a fast pace will keep readers invested in their journey.” ―The Horn Book
“The sci-fi elements are stronger than the fairy-tale allusions this time out, but the story remains just as absorbing. . . . Readers will be thrilled to discover that this steampunky fairy-tale/sci-fi mashup promises two more installments.” ―BCCB

Fortunately, Cinder won't have to do it completely alone. Halfway around the world Scarlet Benoit, aka Red Riding Hood, is searching France for her missing grandmother, a woman who knows something about the early years of Cinder's life. Scarlet and Wolf, a street fighter with his own links to Queen Levana, join forces with Cinder, Cinder's android friend Iko and Cinder's sleazy but ultimately useful prison break partner "Captain" Thorne.
What I love about Scarlet is how well it continues the story and strengths of Cinder, including its thorough world building, its clever and cohesive SciFi update on well known fairy tale characters and their stories, its plot which is both fast paced and full of complications, and probably most important to me, its characters who are learning as they go and having to work together even when they don't completely trust each other.Read more ›
SCARLET was a thrilling second installment that kept me engrossed and reading faster then I could turn the pages. Marissa Meyer's does it again in this twisted retelling of Little Red Riding Hood like you've never seen it before!
Marissa Meyer's takes this fairytale and turns it even better then the original, with a Sci-f twist and it's own touch of originality, SCARLET brings something so unique and truly an addicting adventure that will keep your mind racing, heart aching, and leave you utterly and wonderfully satisfied, while keeping you eager for the next book in this one of a kind series!
I honestly didn't think I could love this second book anymore then I loved CINDER, but boy was I wrong. While CINDER was amazing and had the start to a swoony romance, SCARLET picked up where CINDER left off and progressed this series with a new cast of characters along with the old ones we loved from book one. It blew me away with it's mind blowing action and adventure, and thrilling twist that just kept coming. And we finally start to get some long deserved answers that we desperately craved!
Returning again for another epic adventure is our beloved Cinder that's just as daring and memorable as she was the first time around. She's now a fugitive on the run with the weight of earth and Luna bearing down upon her. Cinder has grown somewhat from book one, but she's still unsure about herself and her capabilities of going up against Levana and wining, but she's not letting that stop her.
But sadly in this second book her and Emperor Kai have no interaction whatsoever.Read more ›
The story starts right up after Cinder. The day after the coronation ball. And, it is action packed from the beginning. Scarlet's grandmother has been missing for a little over 2 weeks. Scarlet is very afraid that something really bad has happened to her grandmother, but the police have stopped looking for her so now Scarlet has to look for her on her own. On her quest to find her grandmother, she runs into wolf, the street fighter, who may just know where her grandmother is. (If you want to know more about Wolf, read the short story, The Queen's Army. Bits of that also ties into this book)
The story also whips back to Cinder and her quest to escape from prison and get out of the grasp of the Luna Queen Levana. On her way trying to escape, she runs in to Captain Carswell Thorne. And together they go on an adventure.
The new characters are great. Thorne is hilarious with his witty remarks. I found myself giggling at almost everything he said. And Wolf, even though you can never tell he is actually a good guy or a bad guy you feel for him. With his shy demeanor but his large physical appearance.
The novel does subtly tie into the little red riding hood tale. Scarlet going to see her grandmother. And other parts of little red riding hood, that I can't add because it might spoil the novel.
There are parts that left me on the edge of my seat.Read more ›
